HARTINGTON — With the kickoff of the new football season in progress this week, the Cedar County News Football Prediction Contest kicks off for the 44th year.
To win, a participant must correctly pick all games appearing in the contest ads. In case more than one picks all games correctly, a tie-breaker included on the entry blank will be used to determine the winner.
If no one picks all games correctly, the person picking the largest number of winners will receive $7.50 and the second highest will receive $5. Again, ties will be decided by the tie-breaker.
Ball games ending in a tie will be counted as a miss unless picked as such on the entry blank.
To be eligible, entries must be delivered to the Cedar County News offie at 102 W Main Street, by 5 p.m. Friday. No exceptions will be made. If the majority of high school games are played on a Thursday, then the deadline moves to Thursday at 5 p.m.
Full names and addresses must be listed on the entry blanks, and checks will be mailed to winners.
Winners of this week’s contest will be announced in next week’s issue.
